The maximum account identifier allocated to this domain controller has been assigned. The domain controller has failed to obtain a new identifier pool.

There may be network or connectivity problems in the domain, or the master domain controller may be offline or missing from the domain. Verify that the master domain controller is running and connected to the domain.
